BLOG POST FOR THE BUTTERSMITHS' GOLD


Blog Post for The Buttersmiths' Gold



POST: (regular)
Buttersmith's Gold Cover Art:

The Buttersmiths' Gold
BATTLES. BLUEBERRIES. BOVINES.
TORBJORN AND STORFJELL’S HISTORY UNFOLDS IN AN EPIC EVERTASTER NOVELLA.

Everyone knows the most coveted treasure of the Viking Age was blueberry muffins. Blueberry muffins so succulent that if you sniffed just a whiff, you'd want a whole bite. If you bit a bite, you'd want a batch; if you snatched a batch, you'd stop at nothing short of going to war just to claim them all.
Young Torbjorn Trofastsonn comes from the clan that makes them. He's a Viking through and
through – he's thirteen winters old, larger than most respectable rocks, and most of all, a Buttersmith. That's what he thinks anyway, until a charismatic merchant makes Torbjorn question his place among the muffin-makers. When Torbjorn lets the secret of his clan's muffin recipe slip, he calls doom and destruction down upon his peaceful village and forces his brother Storfjell and his clansmen to do the one thing they are ill-prepared to do: battle for their lives.

About The Buttersmiths' Gold

The Evertaster series (Book #1 released June 14, 2012) is about Guster Johnsonville, who goes searching for a legendary taste rumored to be the most delicious in all of history. Along the way he meets a slew of mysterious characters, including two Viking brothers Torbjorn and Storfjell. The Buttersmiths' Gold is their story. 124 pages. By Adam Glendon Sidwell. Published by Future House Publishing.

Evertaster, Book #1:
A legendary taste. Sought after for centuries. Shrouded in secrecy.
When eleven-year-old Guster Johnsonville rejects his mother’s casserole for the umpteenth time, she takes him into the city of New Orleans to find him something to eat. There, in a dark, abandoned corner of the city they meet a dying pastry maker. In his last breath he entrusts them with a secret: an ancient recipe that makes the most delicious taste the world will ever know — a taste that will change the fate of humanity forever.

Forced to flee by a cult of murderous chefs, the Johnsonvilles embark on a perilous journey to ancient ruins, faraway jungles and forgotten caves. Along the way they discover the truth: Guster is an Evertaster — a kid so picky that nothing but the legendary taste itself will save him from starvation. With the sinister chefs hot on Guster’s heels and the chefs’ reign of terror spreading, Guster and his family must find the legendary taste before it’s too late.

MY WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE ON MY FIRST BOOK PUBLICATION


MY WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE ON MY FIRST BOOK PUBLICATION


I received a negative reply from the publisher stating that they decided not to publish my book due to the softening market. I then turn this rejection into an opportunity by opting for self publication as I viewed it differently. I then began to complete and improve it further. With determination, will power and strong focus on my goal rather than the obstacles, I finally completed the book with joy. As far as I am concern, book publication may be less urgent, but it is important for me.

Day after day, week after week, month after month, I kept writing, fine-tuning and polishing until I am satisfied with this finished book. Fortunately, my editor allowed me to send it by installments. So, every time I received feedback from my editor with the first round of edits, I was not much surprised at the amount of "Red" on the pages. I became very used to it and send my other chapters until the book was finally completed. The journey was a smooth, steady with great progress, I would say. It may be due to my overwhelming passion and indulgence into it. I felt joy and peace instead of pain as I wrote. Each chapter served as my own discovery and it was very sweet, fulfilled and rewarding, I must say. Since this is my first book, I know that I needed to learn a lot. I am prepared for whatsoever comes along. What matters most to me is keep on polishing and honing my skills and ensuring that the book can serve its readers utmost well, in line with my motto : To Inspire and Get Inspire.  

I'm trying my very best not to get overwhelmed by the amount of work that my "finished" book still needs after comments from various parties.  The comments have been wonderfully encouraging.

I love and salute my editor, Lawrence Loh, who has the super duper ability to fix those sentences by keeping my initial message intact. Well done, Lawrence. At times, he also highlighted my confusing statements and urged me to re-look at it to ensure that it makes sense, is logical and consistent throughout my book.

Chapter by chapter as it progressed, the first draft of book finally came to an end. Then I thought of sending it to another editor. After some feedbacks, it did not turn up to our expectation. Lawrence again decided to go through thoroughly one more time for the entire book, before other supplement pages such as the profile of author, acknowledgement page, and book cover text were added to it. We truly want to create a unique, great read for readers to understand, think and apply it in their lives in responses to the rapid changes of the current environment individually, collectively and as a whole.

As to the particular need of design work, I shared the news with my childhood friend. He subsequently came out with two book cover designs after deep and serious thought. I then circulated the designs to my circle of friends for comments before we further fine tuned the finished product finally.

Thereafter, my son and I took it further by going through the video and guidebook before we managed to upload the entire book content together with its book covers, despite some technical hiccups here and there.

Though it was a lengthy process, yet it was and is so wonderful, fruitful and joyful journey I have ever enjoyed. Before it faded away from my memory, I better put it on record. So, take my challenge to give yourself a try and hope you too enjoy it.
